Not up to mark!

A row may be brewing between Barbados and the Caribbean’s executive director at the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
And the quarrel revolves around the “management of the Caribbean constituency office”, which represents the interest of The Bahamas, Barbados, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica at the IDB. The office is headed by an executive director and an alternate appointed by the various countries on a rotating basis.
In a strongly worded two-page letter to Kurt Kisto, the current executive director who was appointed by Trinidad and Tobago, Grantley Smith, Director of Finance and Economic Affairs in Barbados, complained about the deteriorating quality of the office’s services to his country and the rest of the region.
Barbados was particularly concerned that the office failed to live up to previous standards when the recent IDB board of directors met in Panama.
